Guys! Oh my God… I acted in a Horror Movie. Not Kidding….

It's called Butter on the Latch  -  World Premiere 5/9 and 5/11 in MD.

As an experiment, as prompted by Director Josephine Decker and her insatiable urge to create insanely chilling filmic stories, I acted, for the first time, in a movie!… It took place at Balkan Camp in Mendocino CA, where I go during the summers (in real life) to study Balkan singing. She decided to use Balkan Camp as a backdrop for the story of a young woman, played by me (aptly named Sarah), who looses her mind inside a folk song, Zhenish Me Mamo she's learning about dragons who intwine themselves in a woman's hair and carry them off through the forest, burning as they go. The film explores a friendship, a romance, and terrifying interplay between imagination and reality. The Eastern European Folklife Center was kind enough to allow Josephine and her crew in to create this film. I wasn't sure what I was getting into when we started shooting this movie together, but my god am I glad we did this… The story is brilliantly directed and edited Josephine Decker and hauntingly shot by Ashley Connor. For those Black Sea Hotel fans, an original arrangement of Zhenish Me Mamo will be included on Black Sea Hotel's new album, as well as in the soundtrack of Butter on the Latch.

Butter on the Latch premieres at the fifteenth annual Maryland Film Festival next month:
